Digit Expert | 28 Jan 2020

A soundbar is meant to enhance your TV viewing experience. But with the advancement in technology, soundbars today can give 5.1 home theatres a run for their money. Some of these soundbars also support features like Dolby Atmos or DTS and more. Some also give you additional HDMI inputs. These soundbars come with a wireless subwoofer and some even support wireless surround speakers. The setup for these soundbars is fairly simple. You can wall mount the soundbar if you like or place it on a table below the TV. They offer an immersive surround sound experience.

According to JBL, you should be able to switch between the TV and any other device such as a smartphone or laptop seamlessly thanks to the superior Bluetooth connectivity services it provides.
